Thank you 100 Women Who Care

The holiday “season for giving” is technically over, and we are well into a new year. However, Juneau’s season of giving proves again to be an annual and year-long commitment by its consistently generous residents.

On behalf of the Donor Advisors of the Senior Support Fund at the Juneau Community Foundation, great thanks and appreciation are extended to the women of Juneau who, through a local group called 100WWC (100 Women Who Care), recently donated a remarkable $28,400 to support critically needed services for our elder community. An additional $5,000 from the Robert M. Schultz Foundation topped off the Fund for a total of $33,400.

These contributions provided funding to two vital Catholic Community Service programs for elders, Bridge Adult Day and Nutrition (Meals on Wheels). In addition, four scholarships were awarded to students enrolled in the UAS Certified Nursing Assistant course to support the on-going need for trained healthcare workers who care for seniors.

Personally, I am extremely grateful to the 100WWC organization that makes it so easy and efficient to support Juneau’s nonprofits, and I’m in awe of the 300-plus charitable women who donate $100 every quarter to support various valuable service organizations.

Almost 25% of Juneau’s population is over the age of 65. Supporting our elders to live healthy and safe in a community they love couldn’t be more important. Thank you to all who help make this possible.
